How to be Assertive Without Being Aggressive


“How do I assert myself as a man without coming across as too forceful?” – Carl, Washington DC


This is a critical question at this moment in time. Many men, especially young men come to me with this dilemma — how can I be assertive and confident, without being aggressive and arrogant?

“For [erotically intelligent couples], love is a vessel that contains both security and adventure, and commitment offers one of the great luxuries of life: time. Marriage is not the end of romance, it is the beginning. They know that they have years in which to deepen their connection, to experiment, to regress, and even to fail. They see their relationship as something alive and ongoing, not a fait accompli. It’s a story that they are writing together, one with many chapters, and neither partner knows how it will end. There’s always a place they haven’t gone yet, always something about the other still to be discovered.”
Esther Perel, Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic and the Domestic

Esther Perel, Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic and the Domestic

“Love rests on two pillars: surrender and autonomy. Our need for togetherness exists alongside our need for separateness.”
Esther Perel, Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic and the Domestic
